Half a dozen machines here (roughly, it varies) say that hal is fine. 
One of those machines is a T42, but needs updating to the latest 
8-stable.  Apparently I put the significant files on the FLCL site a 
while back:

No, please stop doing that.  See

These are defaults.

Sorry, must disagree with that.  -configure creates outmoded xorg.conf 
files, with older options that are either no longer needed or outright 
obsolete.  It also leaves out useful settings.
